CourseSmart and Pearson eCollege have partnered to provide more than 20,000 electronic textbooks, custom products, and other digital materials through a single sign on. All the titles are available through Pearson’s learning management system, Pearson LearningStudio, with no implementation fee. Pearson LearningStudio, delivered as software-as-a-service, is an online learning platform that allows instructors to provide students with content and the ability to communicate and collaborate inside and outside the classroom. It also features assessment and analysis tools for improving retention, identifying at-risk students, and managing learning outcomes.
Sooner than expected, a course system has been launched from Blackboard and McGraw-Hill Higher Education that blends course management from one company with content from the other. First publicly announced in January 2011, the new offering, which has no particular name, provides users with a single point of access for online courses, materials, and learning tools.
